This may not be the most original of films. Michael Hui plays Chang Yau-Wai a family committed news reporter. Josephine Siao plays his wife, who together, have their hands full with the fast growing children, including their soon to be wed daughter. One day, during a news broadcast, Chang Yau-Wai starts having stomach pains. The doctor tells him he could have cancer. Sounds pretty schmaltzy so far. But the film never feels melodramatic. In fact, for the best part it's very lighthearted and never takes itself too seriously. Michael Hui's vast experience in comedy roles actually helps a lot, creating a funny, yet likeably realistic, down to earth character. The rest of the cast are also excellent. Jacob Cheung is one of Hong Kong's best non art-house directors of drama, and he's at the top of his game here. Technically no big shakes, but the pacing is fine, and the script is very polished for a Hong Kong film. The film also ends on a perfect note. The fate of Michael Hui's character is not what's important. It's what he'd achieved previously. Overall, while not very original, it's a very warm hearted film, as well as being one of the most Universal films to come out of 90's Hong Kong
